Hi there! Thank you, thelink2012 once again for creating this unbelievable tool! It is magical!

May I ask a little question?

I want to put few ped packs, that add peds without replacing originals. Each pack has it is own pedgrp.dat and peds.ide.

Will those .dat's and .ide's be merged inside modloader respectively?

I think they will caught some conflict since you have multiple ped.ide and dat files . Why don't you combine all of them into one .

I would love to, but I dont really know how to do that. There are plenty of text there and very easy to oversight something.

But since they are done with ADDING new ones in mind I think they shouldnt conflict, or at least I hope. 

But still, will those IDEs be merged in modloader?

There shouldn't be a problem. A list of files that can be merged can be found here.

hellooo, maybe this already has an answer somewhere, but how about this

let's say we have vehicle pack along with the handling.cfg etc inside 1 folder in the modloader, set to priority 49

 

then I have another folder for my several special and favorite vehicle that override the pack (priority higher than 49) with readme.txt inside (handling lines, carcols, etc)

but I know that this readme.txt won't override the stats from .cfg in the vehicle pack.

 

so how to mitigate this? I mean we do have those kind of situation right, where you have pack of vehicle overriding all default vehicle, and some individual vehicle that you want to override the pack

You take out the parts that matter from the handling.cfg or you add the contents from the readme.txt to the handling.cfg? 🤷‍♂️

no, the car pack mods is in one package, all the cars texture, along with its handling.cfg etc, I put them inside modloader without modifying any original files. and modloader reads that handling.cfg very well, overidding the original handling.cfg

 

but If i want some other car mods overidding that, it cannot since no .txt can override .cfg inside modloader

So just like I said, add the contents of the readme.txt to the other handling.cfg, nothing difficult about that, or do some more work and put the changes of the handling.cfg from the modpack to a whatever.txt & not deal with a handling.cfg 🤦‍♂️

it's not about "difficult", it's all about separation.

it's why people are using modloader in the first place.

 

they (the "vehicle pack" and "private car" mods) are 2 DIFFERENT packages mods. Having them separated is nice because you can freely toggle one and/or another when necessary.

Mixing the content of those different mods kills this purpose.

In that case, no way to do it without modifying the files to a more mixable format, so just convert the necessary lines from the handling.cfg to a handling.txt, problem solved, not difficult either 🤷‍♂️

 

Now if you don't want to do any work, hit up the creator and he/she might do it for you, if not, though luck, put some effort in for once.

I also thought about that, changing the .cfg into usual .txt.

No one has ever, ever, even once, mentioned anything about facing "difficulties", being "lazy", or not wanting to put any "effort" here.

I'm just wondering whether there are already a "proper" way regarding to this, since one of the author consider this a "bug" back in their original thread https://www.mixmods.com.br/2015/07/tutorial-dicas-tudo-sobre-mod-loader.html about good practices in using modloader, which I'm not even sure whether you have read it or not,

and given it's already been some time, maybe, just maybe, I'm wondering whether there is a "new consensus" about this.

 

I'm not in any circumstances finding for easy or lenient way. I'm enforcing good practices in modding and particularly, using modloader.

I won't be here questioning about any small detail if I were to be lazy in the first place.

I'll just play the original games with only silent patch and asi loader if I"don't want to do any work" or "don't put some effort in" since it's much more plausible and logical for "lazy people".

That's interesting. I wasn't really aware of such a bug. Thanks for reporting, I've opened a issue for that.

 

It makes sense that this bug exists, and I'm not quite sure how fixing that will work, but I'll think about it once the time comes. The problem is that the process of merging other config files with readme entries is done by constructing one config file (based off the default one) with all readme entries in it (or, ones that do not conflict with each other). Then adding that to the list of config files to be installed. Meanwhile, the priority system only defines the order mods are seen by the config loader.

whoah I can't believe I'm seeing the real link..

 

yes btw I've been researching and learning about several mod parts, including this modloader.

newest version of modloader (from junior_djjr and co) still seemingly doesn't handle that case (no .txt can override .cfg inside modloader).

 

But ofc if necessary, we can just transform the .cfg into usual .txt, containing the lines usually found in "readme.txt" right? (removing the complete information usually found on .cfg) right..?

Might require an ASI loader in order to load early enough? Do you have Ultimate ASI Loader installed?

Nvm i did some testing with it, and found that modloader waas actually working,even though there was no extra  modloader menu in the main menu(like in SA). i had to set the custom priorities by myself via the ini. It seems some types of files like some dffs are not loaded properly in VC ,(dunno why?) But overall it very much works.

std.data.dll_unloaded crash since I installed the latest version. Silent's asi loader is what I use.

 

Found the cause: PS2 maps to PC.

Hi, i have an issue with modloader on GTA 3/III

When i try replacing files like generic.txd or hud.txd it works perfectly

But the problem is that, when i try installing a mod that replaces something inside gta3.img or txd.img the game crashes on load time.

Not sure why this happens, heres the error log:

What kind of a mod replaces stuff in txd.img? Pretty sure it's generated during the first run and works like a cache to load textures faster.

(Not sure though)

Just delete txd.img if you are replacing stuff inside gta3.img

Beta leftovers fix

But even if it does not replace something on txd.img it stills crashes
